SUEZ signs contracts with MODEC

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

SUEZ has signed 4 contracts for the FPSO vessels Libra and Sepia, which will explore the oil fields located 180 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro. The company will supply a full range of treatment solutions, including seawater desalination units and sulfate removal units to supply the platforms with quality injection water and will ensure the treatment of production water before it is discharged into the sea.

SUEZ will also provide 1000 nanofiltration membranes for the FPSO vessels MV22 and MV24, deployed in the Santos basin. These new seawater sulfate removal membranes will reduce scale and corrosion in the injection well, thus optimizing enhanced oil recovery. To fully meet the needs of the oil exploration and production sector, which is growing fast in the region, SUEZ has invested over US$2.5 million to complete its range of solutions in Latin America with flammable chemical products to improve water and oil separation, production flows, and asset protection.

SUEZ will also inaugurate in early 2019, in Rio de Janeiro, an application development laboratory for the same industry sector, to test and offer tailor-made chemical solutions for the industrial players in the region.
